April E-News: Now gathering workshop suggestions

Although it's only spring, it's the time of year to begin planning next year's EcoFarm Conference. And this is where you come in. Did this year's conference get you thinking about important and timely topics - ones that would make a valuable workshop or discussion group? Share your ideas for consideration in our workshop selection process. Suggestions for workshops and speakers will be accepted through June 15, 2015 via our online Workshop Suggestion Form.

The Ecological Farming Association provides a grassroots, open forum for planning each year's conference. Comprised of 40 volunteers, the EcoFarm Planning Committee represents a broad spectrum of backgrounds who review your workshop suggestions, discuss, and then vote on the top picks. While core offerings are technical in nature and geared towards farmers, a wide range of timely food and farming topics are always in the mix.

Whether you're a farmer, rancher, distributor, retailer, consumer, industry rep, consultant, activist, consumer or educator, we want to hear from you. Thanks and Happy Earth Day!
